Privatising our roads will be a terrible deal – just as it was for the telecoms and water industries
Report after report shows that the myth of greater private-sector efficiency in doing public works is just that: a myth
That\’s the headline and subhead.
In the actual piece:
Were I a true believer in bringing in the private sector, I\’d argue that the best way to do this would be to open up the market to full-blown competition. I\’d point to what happened to telecoms after BT was privatised.
The argument actually is that telecoms provatisation did work because it brought competition.
D\’ye think the subs even bothered to read the article?
